Alex Haidaris, MSTCM, L.Ac.
Alexandra ("Alex") Haidaris is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Oregon. She graduated from the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, California where she earned her Master’s in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM). She is nationally board certified (NCCAOM) and has an undergraduate degree in Anthropology from San Francisco State University. After graduating, she continued her education in herbal medicine by studying traditionally used herbs while travelling in Siberia for 2 years.
Before becoming a practitioner, Alex was a patient receiving acupuncture and experienced great results. Her desire to help people, interest in health and herbalism, and her personal experiences with the effectiveness of TCM converged into a passion for sharing TCM with others. She particularly enjoys treating digestive issues, insomnia, and musculoskeletal complaints such as pain and arthritis, and loves to utilize cupping, tui na (massage), and lifestyle/dietary advice.
Alex has a nurturing and accepting approach, always truly meeting people where they are at. She enjoys learning about the diverse experiences of her patients, and hopes with everyone she meets to share with them the joy of living and healing naturally.
When not practicing, Alex enjoys hitting the trail, eating out at just about any cuisine, and experimenting with dishes at home. Otherwise, you might find her with her nose in a book!
